My Husband is finally free
So after 4 year in the P&P business my husband finally decided all the bull**** isn't worth it. Things had gone well for a few years, but the last year things went down hill fast. Other vendors getting his bids and then him getting their "return at your own cost" because they messed up. Having to fight with the vendor management to get it corrected as he did not do the work and wasn't going to take the fall for some hack.
Then with BLM taking over HUD, the Asons work went from several good jobs a week to zero.
A few weeks ago we sat down and discussed the pros (not many) and cons ( to many to count) of this field of work and he agreed it was time to move on. He called the three companies he was a vendor for and explained he would no longer be doing P&P work. They understood and wished him well as did he to them.
Insurance has been cancelled and he started a full-time job this morning as a heavy equipment operator at a Power Plant making $28 and hour with overtime if needed.
The best thing was this past week he had several phone calls from two of the companies asking if he would reconsider as they have no vendors in the area now and just got a "boat load of work". Um nope not doing it.
Good luck to those of you who are trying to get started in this field your going to need it.
